On July 4th, 2010, Annika began understanding that the holiday was more than fireworks and cookouts–it was America’s birthday! Here is a conversation she had with my mom, Grandma Overholt:
Annika: “Grandma, if this is America’s birthday, how old is it?”
Grandma: “234 years old.”
Annika: “Is that older than you?”
We hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July celebrating our country’s birthday!
